Serves 4380g dried linguini
10g parmesan, grated
Bring water to the boil and cook the linguini for 7 minutes then take off the heat and leave immersed in the water while you make the sauce.
In a large frying pan add butter, olive oil and pancetta. Cook until pancetta softens then add shallots, garlic and chilli. Once softened add anchovies and broccoli and cook for 3 minutes. Add wine and pasta water and reduce by two-thirds. Add the pasta and stir through, finishing with herbs and lemon juice. Serve with some freshly grated parmesan over the top.TIP: To make this cheaper make your own pasta and cure your own pork belly for pancetta.
